Located near Biloela in central Queensland, Australia, the Callide Power Station actually comprises 3 stations – Callide ‘A’, Callide ‘B’ and the Callide Power Plant, (Callide ‘C’).
Callide is coal-fired with eight steam turbines with a combined generation capacity
of 1,720 MW of electricity. (Enough to provide power to about 2 million homes). Callide ‘A’, with four 30MW turbines, was refurbished in 1998. It was put in “storage” in 2001 in readiness for its conversion to Oxyfuel technology.
